‘Arsène Wenger: Invincible’ is finally arriving next month, with the 90 minute feature film set to provide the definitive documentary of a footballing pioneer.
Wenger changed the landscape of the English Premier League as we know it and achieved the impossible – and this will be the first time Le Prof has told his story in his own words.
Featuring remarkable access and previously unseen archive footage, directors Gabriel Clarke (Bobby Robson: More Than A Manager, Finding Jack Charlton) and Christian Jeanpierre draw back the veil on a truly enigmatic figure who unveils his footballing “addiction” that was both his driving force and his “fatal flaw.”
Shot on location in England, France and Arsène’s home village of Duttlenheim, the documentary provides the most insightful look into one of English football’s most well-loved characters yet, with words from the man himself.
Using Arsenal’s historic “Invincible” season of 2003-04 as the launchpad of the doc, the film sees Wenger reflect candidly on his revolutionary era at Arsenal and the emotional and personal turmoil that surrounded his controversial exit after 22 years. .
Star appearances also arrive from legends such as Sir Alex Ferguson and iconic players whose careers were impacted by the French coach, including Thierry Henry, Patrick Vieira, Dennis Bergkamp, Ian Wright, Emanuel Petit and Robert Pires.
‘Arsène Wenger: Invincible’ comes to cinemas from 11 November, and on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Download on 22 November. Take in the trailer above and cop the film on pre-order now.
